High School of the Dead

I'm not normally a big fan of Anime. I know a lot of people are, but I just can't seem to get into it. I did kinda like the Street Fighter 2 movie and this one called Ninja Scroll. But aside from that, I wouldn't go out of my way to pick one up.

Manga is another thing I can't get into. I've read some... but like the animated stuff they just drag on too long for me.

Well... I guess I've kind of made an exception because since last night I've been reading High School of the Dead. I got a translated copy of the manga cause the name made me curious, even before I got through the first volume, I began looking around for the other issues. Now I have all 4 volumes.

And I must say... it makes for a very exciting read. It's basically about a bunch of high school kids whose town has been over run by zombies. The art is manga and it has tones of panty shots and what not thrown all over the place. But it's the zombies and the gore that sealed the deal for me.

If I can get my hands on more stuff like this,I just might expand my entertainment horizons... but no tentacle monsters please.
